Re: Ericsson cannot support mmwave in the near future
Yeah, their test rigs are at 6GHz & 15GHz as far as I know. I was a bit surprised he said that, I was expecting him to say 3.5GHz small cells personally. Still, it is going to be in every vendor's interest to at least get a 28GH test system going now the FCC is stepping up to push it harder.

Ericsson cannot support mmwave in the near future
"Tolstoy, however, insists the vendor will support whatever frequencies AT&T needs."

Ericsson cannot support 28 Ghz in the near future because the radiowave properties are different between frequencies and Ericsson lacks the technology, experience, and testing to do 28 Ghz in the near future. You can do 28 Ghz like you do a 60 Ghz WiGig, then your range would be only a few hundred meters and cannot possibly complete against Samsung's 28 Ghz system with a range of 2 km and a support for moving vehicles at 65 mph.

In other word, Ericsson is in a real trouble in the 5G era. It took only a blink of an eye before Ericsson went from a dominant player in the handset business to out of business. The same thing could happen in the 5G era, when Ericsson goes from a dominant LTE player to a niche player in 5G.

Oh, another related news is that Samsung's 28 Ghz 5G modem for handsets will be finished testing by summer of next year and will be intergrated into prototype 5G Galaxy phones to be tested by visiting world press at Pyongchang in 2018.
